Avocado BLT With Fried Egg And Chipotle Aioli


Avocado BLT With Fried Egg And Chipotle Aioli

Ingredients

8 Slices of Sourdough Bread, toasted with unsalted butter
Chipotle Aioli
Green Leaf Lettuce, rinsed and dried
1 Beefsteak Tomato (or any variety) sliced
12 oz (12 strips) Cooked Smoked Thick Center-Cut Bacon
4 Fried Eggs
1 Firm and ripe Avocado, sliced thickly


Chipotle Aioli
5 Cloves of Garlic, peeled
¼ Cup Olive Oil
2 Chipotle (from can/tin) with a little sauce
1 Egg Yolk
1 tsp of Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice, or to taste
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Method

Chipotle Aioli: In a small saucepan, over low heat, cook the olive oil and garlic for about 10 minutes, or until the garlic is softened and light golden brown in color. Remove the garlic and let the oil cool slightly.

Put the garlic, chipotle, egg yolk, a little salt, and a few grinds of pepper in the bowl of the processor fitted with the steel blade and blend well. With processor running, add the reserved oil in a thin, steady stream. When the aioli is emulsified and all the oil has been absorbed, scrape it into a bowl and adjust the seasoning to taste with salt, pepper, and lime juice.

To assemble the sandwich: Spread some chipotle aioli generously over one side of each slice of toasted bread. Top with lettuce on half the bread slices, tomato, bacon, fried egg, and avocado. Cover with the other slice of bread. Press the sandwich firmly, cut into half and serve immediately.

  2. @joey armstrong: Well, you can mash or finely chop the garlic and Chipotle. Then use a whisk to beat in the egg yolk, and continue to beat in the oil in a thin stream until the aioli is emulsified.

  3. mm very neat cut sandwiches. the fillings tend to squish out when i cut in half like that...

  4. I am adding this to my sandwich rotation! I love fried egg on anything really, and could totally justify having this for breakfast.

  7. It looks as though you have the same problem I do when it comes to BLT's. I can't remember the last time I had a BLT. By the time I get the sandwich all put together it's more like a BLTCTASC (Bacon, Lettus, Tomato, Cheese, Turkey, Avacodo, Sprouts & Cucumber. Oh and don't skimp on on the lemon basil mayo.)

  11. Made this sandwich this afternoon. So, so yummy. I packed in on a picnic and ate it with berries and two other people who enjoyed it just as much. Certainly going to make it again.

  13. Hey, this sandwich was awesome! Totally made a mess out of my kitchen (not your fault, but mine...it's very important to use every dish when you're trying to cook something) This sandwich should come with a warning though, you WILL need a napkin, it's so so good you can't be bothered to eat it like an adult human being! Thanks for posting! ❤️

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
